Post Odd request for assistance

Michel de Montaigne was a French renaissance sceptic who I've recently come across and am finding fascinating. He had a slogan: "Que scais-je?" (what do I know) struck onto a medal. I want to see a picture of it but I can't find it anywhere, except cafe press which has a crappy rendering. Ideally I'd like to print off a nice version of it.

It must exist somewhere...

Best I could do so far:

One of my absolute favourite writers. To the best of my knowledge that is the only rendered print. I've seen some good re-creations though...
Teapublican commandment:
Thou shalt not educate or improve the lives of the lesser classes, the lesser races, or women.
